Location: Winter Springs, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Multiple round orange lights traveling horizontally, East to West, at low altitude.

I saw a few strange orange lights outside my window. I live near Orlando International Airport so several planes fly overhead every hour, these lights did not look at all like planes or helicopters. A plane will have a red light on the left wingtip, a green light on the right wingtip, and a strobe light in the center.

This was a solid orange light, there were several of them traveling from East to West, and they appeared to be at relatively low altitude. There were also planes in the sky at the time and these lights were drastically different, they sort of looked like flares but were traveling completely horizontally.

When one passed particularly close I thought it sounded like a rocket engine but it could have been the sound of a jet passing overhead.

A buddy of mine saw them outside his house about 15 minutes later; he lives nearby and also saw the orange lights traveling horizontally East to West.
